Why You Should Consider a LULA Elevator

Significantly Lower Operating Cost
LULA elevators were developed as a lower-cost, highly functional alternative to a commercial passenger elevator and a more refined fully featured alternative to a vertical wheelchair platform lift. The key is clearly understanding where commercial LULA elevators are the best solution.
A LULA lift is particularly well suited to meet ADA and accessibility needs where vertical travel does not exceed 25 feet, the desired lifting capacity is up to 1,400 lbs and the square footage of floors serviced is within applicable codes. When combining all equipment, construction, and installation costs, LULAs can provide substantial savings while requiring a lesser footprint.
As compared to vertical wheelchair platform lifts, there are many advantages of the LULA over wheelchair lifts, including but not limited to greater functionality and visual appeal.
